HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN WINDSURFING VS. KITEBOARDING?
Windsurf lessons will get you going in the water the first day, where as kiteboarding takes about 9-13 hours to fully feel comfortable to practice on your own time. Kiteboarding lessons are individual, where as windsurfing lessons can be done in a group.
SHOULD I ARRIVE EARLY TO MY LESSON?
